Swine Flu Hits Area School

Posted by wlpo on June 18, 2009

The La Salle County Public Health Department has confirmed a fourth case of Swine Flu.

The health department says the latest to come down with the virus is a 10 year old girl. This would seem to match up with an announcement made yesterday by Ottawa Elementary School District Superintendent Craig Doster that a student going to class at the First Church of the Nazarene was diagnosed. School actually finished last week but Doster wanted to let parents know in case their kids start showing symptoms.

Other Swine Flu cases in La Salle County are with a 35 year old man and a 22 year old and 49 year old woman.

Rally To Save Social Services

Posted by wlpo on June 18, 2009

Like many agencies that rely on state funding to provide services to people with disabilities, officials with Gateway Services in Princeton want to see the state budget fully funded.

They’re hoping for a tax increase so funding for the Department of Human Services won’t be affected. To raise awareness of this, they’re planning to hold a rally this afternoon near the Bureau County Courthouse.

CEO and President of Gateway Services Jeff Dean and Director of the Zearing Child Enrichment Center Andrea Anderson are two of the people expected to speak.

The rally is scheduled for 1:30.
